New Way We're Going To Do Free Agents
« on: September 06, 2010, 10:29:33 AM »
The Free Agent situation has gotten a little out of hand and I really don't feel like taking 4 hours out of my busy schedule to adjust people's rosters for free agents based on all the cuts over the weekend. The league starts on Thursday (or Friday if that's when roster update comes out) and the rosters will be whatever they are at that point when the league starts.

Also, based on Mr. B's suggestion, we are going to change the FA draft. We will do it this way: Friday from 6 p.m. PST to Saturday at 6 p.m. PST will be open to one (1) FA pick for the 10 worst teams. Saturday from 6 p.m. to Sunday 6 p.m. PST will be for the middle 10 teams to pick one (1) player. Sunday from 6 p.m. to Monday 6 p.m. PST will be for the 12 best teams to pick one (1) player.  Starting Monday evening after that deadline, it is wide open for you all to do what you want with the remaining FAs.

Thanks.

Pretty much, but at least you already know who you want.  So when its your turn it will be pretty easy to pick your player

There is no draft. All this means is that since you have a team in the bottom 10 teams you can pick up 1 free agent of your choice starting Thursday at 6 pm PST.

You'll just have to hope nobody picks him before you get the chance to. This is the most fair way to do it.

there is no posting. you have to actually go into the franchise and pick up your 1 player.

Once i set up the league, I will send out invitations to everybody. To accept the invitation you go to the Madden NFL Online Hub, then on the right side you want to scroll down to Online Franchise, then hit A on Invitations. You will see our league name there, to which you will accept the invite. You will pick the team you are (Lions in your case), then enter the password, which I will send to everybody in a message. You will then be taken to the main page of the league, where you can go down to Rosters, then Player Management, and then you will want to hold the left trigger and scroll up to Free Agents. You will then be shown a list of all the Free Agents sorted from best player to worst, and once you find the player you like you just hit A on them and hit add to roster, or whatever it says.

I don't want to help anyone else because I want to get the player I want, BUT, I'm thinking the first thing to do would clear a roster spot yeah???  Because in a regular franchise you can't add a player due to your roster being full.  So I'm thinking join the franchise, and drop the player you will NEVER play with in order to make room for your new free agent. 

If I'm wrong let me know, just my understanding of how this will work. 

P.S.  I Don't know how to drop a player...haha.  Oh well.   :o

If you need to drop a player it's almost the same procedure. You go to player management under roster, then pick the player you want to drop, hit A, and then pick drop player.
